At first I thought Aretha Franklin died. She's still alive, right?

God bless Scantrons, without which I would not know that the first 8 letters of the alphabet are:

Lor M. Ipsum: Ashtrey: Anyone else think Aretha Franklin died?

Yup. My heart sank, but when I saw the article, my heart went "oh...meh."

Aretha cannot die. She's the undisputed Queen of Soul. She's immortal.

I used to work for Scantron, so I am getting a kick out of these comments.

No. Really. I did work for Scantron in Los Angeles. Found out just how stupid college professors can be at UCLA when I went on a service call out there. Yikes!

I used a carpenter's pencil when I took the SAT in High School. It made filling in the answers so much easier.

I thought this was a repeat of when John McCarthy (inventor of the LISP programming language) died.

CSB: The office office I worked in got a new scanner when the SAT changed to include essays. Whereas the old one was a very benign-looking little beige thing, the new one was much larger, black, and had lots of smoked glass.

One guy looks at it for about a second and says "Look, it's Darth Grader."

It got such a good laugh that a visiting VP went and sent a company-wide email stealing his joke--except she called it "Darth Scanner." She didn't understand why nobody thought her joke was funny.

Subby spelled the headline wrong. Should've been: ⓇⓔⓢⓣⓘⓝⓅⓔⓐⓒⓔ
/Need Arial Unicode MS or some other full Unicode 2+ font installed to read that. Lucida Sans Unicode will not suffice.

Baz the Spaz: All of my high school students hate it when I pull out the Scantron forms. But, I want them to get used to it as they will see a lot of Scantron tests in college.

I have moved much of my assessment tools to the Internet. They seem to like on-line tests a lot more than Scantrons.

No shiat, cuz they can cheat 10x easier.

I recall these. What I don't recall was the teachers "teaching the test".

Article: "Between the years 1945 and 1947, Sokolski served in Italy, fighting in the battle of Monte Cassino as a tank driver."

Monte Cassino was in 1944.
